3/2/2017 "I’m responding on behalf of Microsoft to your email and your concerns regarding the Jan. 27 US executive order on immigration. We would like to direct your attention to the following blog by Microsoft that addresses this issue. Microsoft issued the following statement on Jan. 29 in response to the executive order: “We believe the executive order is misguided and a fundamental step backwards. There are more effective ways to protect public safety without creating so much collateral damage to the country’s reputation and values.” Microsoft will continue to advocate strongly on this and other issues with the Administration and with Congress."
3/2/2017 "Thank you very much for your reply. We have followed Microsoft's public statements with interest, and we are also aware that Microsoft joined the State of Washington's lawsuit against the administration, which has effectively halted the implementation of controversial components of the EO. The questions in our February 3 email pertain to any processes Microsoft may have employed to evaluate the company's position as a contractor to the Department of Homeland Security. Specifically, we would like to understand if Microsoft considered whether the services and software it provided to DHS might create a risk of "complicity" in human rights abuses, by facilitating the enforcement of the Order. In other words, did Microsoft carry out any internal reviews to determine whether its relationship with DHS would link it to the implementation of the Executive Order?"
